1940s weekend in Sheringham, North Norfolk 2013

Yet again, Sheringham, in North Norfolk, held its annual 1940’s weekend over the weekend of September 21st and 22nd 2013. This event goes from strength to strength and is now one of the largest events of its kind in England and North Norfolk photographer, Pierre Butikofer, spent two days soaking up the atmosphere.

This event is a photographer’s dream and the opportunity to take photos is just too hard to resist. It seems this year that even more people took the opportunity to dress up and participate.

Having chatted to people who visited for the first time, dressed in mufti, all said that they would return next year in full costume.

The ladies and their fantastic variety of head-gear would certainly give Ladies Day at Ascot a real good run for their money!!

I just hope that my photographs have captured the mood, the fun and the sense  of occasion  that everybody had over these last two days and please feel free to leave any comments.
